Trying to say yes to anything.
Turning down jobs that won't make me happy.
Taking strange opportunities to tour around the world with the strangest people.
|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
Having (finally) visited America I can see why so much music about escaping where you're from exists. I can understand the desire to be different and to rebel, and from that I can finally see why 'emo' is such a massive phenomenon over there.|
I'd love to look at the obsessive fans of this genre, and maybe follow the bands around, to break down the myths of 'emo'.
|This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)|
Frederick Exley - A Fan's Notes.|
Picked this up because Hunter S. Thompson recommended it. Also wanted to read seriously American books when I was in America. (On The Road??).
Totally addictive and utterly depressing.
Gave my copy to one of the Misfits. Am being sent something similarly intellectual from him.
Watch this space...
